Peace & Chow, Chow & Peace

At Camp Orkila, and especially in the Teen Expedition Programs, there is a tradition of how to begin meals: with a Peace & Chow circle. Together in our group, we cross our arms, hold hands, and share what we appreciate. Appreciations can range form someone in the group, to the food we are about to eat, or the sky above our head. Once everyone has shared, one person says "Peace & Chow," then everyone replies "Chow & Peace," and we uncross our arms by twirling around!

Perhaps this Thanksgiving you can bring the tradition to your meal. Happy Thanksgiving from Camp Orkila!
